The €25,000 High Roller event (a single-day event that required two days to be completed) resumed on Thursday at Casino Barcelona after a one-day break.

With only three left I would have gone for Martin Finger to win,a shame a UK player didn't get a tournament win but this has to be Liv Boeree's best result for years.I often wonder why she has been in Team Pokerstars for so long without winning much.

Good to see Liv Boeree at a final stage of the tournament.
Liv Boeree (@Liv_Boeree) tweeted: On Aug 25 "In the money of the EPT Barcelona High Roller, 22 left and I'm about 4th in chips." On Aug 26 "Made the final 3 of the EPT Barcelona high roller!! We play it out tomorrow or whenever I finish the Main event. Ty for all the support." On Aug 26 "Tried out flyboarding yesterday here at EPT Barcelona. So fun. So painful. So rocketman." On Aug 27 "Cards didn't go my way today, finished 3rd. Still over the moon, of course!!" On Aug 27 "Thanks for all the support everyone, I really appreciate it."
Well played, Liv. Better luck next time!

Martin Finger what a great achievement .. EPT Main Event, a Super High Roller, and a High Roller .. Just wow , these German players are starting to make a name for themselves lot of known names in that final table .. Isaac Haxton only 6th spot .. still a great run for the online phenomenon Mike McDonald with his amazing/frightening stare .. 5th spot .. nice to see him still making good results
